CAL FIRE crews will be in West Atascadero Tuesday for the annual Fire Preparedness Exercise.
Beginning at 9:30 a.m., crews will be at Vierra Ranch, just south of Santa Lucia and El Monte roads, hiking, constructing fire lines, and participating in various safety exercises.
The exercise is done to maintain CAL FIRE'S Type 1 status for emergency response in California.
CAL FIRE says crews have been training for the exercise for several months.
